Hawaii’s Big Island Is a Stargazer’s Paradise

What a thrill it was see the International Space Station from Waimea earlier this week and to know there are astronauts aboard flying the craft at 17,000 mph 342 miles above the earth! Opportunities like this are just one of the joys of skygazing on the Big Island. With just a little advance planning, Big Island residents and visitors can see all kinds of wonderful sights with the naked eye or binoculars, including the Southern Cross, the Milky Way (both spectacular sights in summer) and Omega Centauri.
